Responsive images means images that can be scaled to fit the content blocks they are displayed in. One core concept of responsive web design is that content blocks can be resized to fit the width of the browser window. While some HTML is naturally scalable, images typically have a fixed width and height and thus represents a challenge to a scalable layout. In this post i have collected 15 Javascript libraries that will help you gracefully handle images when building a responsive website.

The idea is to have “header” and “footer” HTML areas that are common across all devices (styled appropriately using CSS media queries), and to dynamically replace the “content” area of the page with HTML tailored to the requesting-device’s width or capabilities.
